ENERGETIC HEALING AND THE FOUR THUMPS!
Energy healing is a holistic practice that activates the body’s subtle energy systems to remove blocks. By breaking through these energetic blocks, the body’s inherent ability to heal itself is stimulated. Every single one of us are energy healers! So much of how we feel and react to those feelings and emotions has to do with our energy – either negative or positive. It is with intention (of a good outcome!) that we can be proactive and help ourselves get through so many physical, mental and emotional experiences.
Emotion Freedom Technique is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. I’m going to show you a fundamental exercise of how “energy tapping” using the Four Thumps method on certain areas of the body will help. I know this is going to seem weird at first but I think with continued use you’ll be amazed at how you feel. This practice along with repeating a positive affirmation(s) and tapping energetically to wake up the energy and get it moving, will help alleviate whatever stress it is that you’re experiencing.

1. Cheekbone thump:
While you breathe deeply, with the pads of your fingers, tap on both cheekbones beneath both eyes for 10 to 15 seconds.
2. K-27 thump:
To locate these important points, place your fingers on the valley at the bottom of your throat where a man would tie his tie. Go down about an inch and out about an inch and tap in the soft spots under your collarbone for 10 to 15 seconds.
3. Thymus thump:
Tap with your fingers in the center of your sternum, right on the thymus gland for 10 to 15 seconds. (Children love to bang their chest like a gorilla, complete with sound effects!)
4. Spleen thump:
Beneath the breasts and down one rib are the spleen neuro-lymphatic points. Tap them for 10 to 15 seconds.

When you tap certain places with your fingers, your energy is impacted in a positive way because strong impulses are being sent to your brain. These four thumps work in tandem to nurture and strengthen your energy systems, move your energies forward and re-charge your battery.
